Installation

Installation is fairly simple and it should only take a few minutes of your time.

  1. If you haven't already, register to obtain username and password.

  2. Navigate to http://www.tradeexpert.net/ and download the installation package.

  3. For your TE3 installation you will have to create a new directory inside your public_html directory for the respective domain name. We advise you to choose a unique directory name (e.g. your_directory, anything, xxx, gallery…). chmod it to 755 (depending on your server configuration you may need to chmod it to 775 or 777).

  4. Extract the installation package you have downloaded and upload install.php into your public_html/your_TE3_directory/ directory in binary mode. Chmod install.php to 755.

  5. Point your browser to http://www.yourdomain.com/your_TE3_directory/install.php and follow the instructions.

  6. After the installation is completed, you must delete install.php (recommended), or chmod it to 0.

  7. It is extremely important to test if .htaccess protection is working properly (refer to the next section).


.htaccess protection test

your_TE3_directory/tedata directory contains user database, trades, history and other sensitive data. It has to be well protected. .htaccess file inside tedata directory prevents anyone to view or execute files inside tedata directory through their browsers.

You have to make sure .htaccess is working properly. Try to access tedata directory and some files inside it, through your browser. For example: http://www.yourdomain.com/your_TE3_directory/tedata/
http://www.yourdomain.com/your_TE3_directory/tedata/tips.txt

You should see 404 (Not Found) message. If you can view contents of the directory tedata or if you can view “tips.txt” normally, then .htaccess on your server is not working and you should consult your server administrator immediately!

Remember to replace your_TE3_directory from the examples with directory name you have chosen.
